Jackson Getting Chance at St. Benedict's
The Herald News features Tamir Jackson of Haledon, NJ. With the departure of Eugene Harvey to Seton Hall and the arrival of Zack Rosen at St. Benedict's, Jackson will likely be the starting shooting guard this season for coach Danny Hurley.
Jeff Jacobs of The Hartford Courant also has an interesting column on the whole Geno Auriemma-Jim Calhoun soap opera in which he says that Auriemma came close to taking the Oklahoma men's job that ultimately went to Jeff Capel, but that he remains in Storrs because of family and business commitments. Clearly, the two UConn coaches are not going out to dinner anytime soon.
